Thanks Matthys,

I also hope Val will be better soon. Her son was also at the meet and we "kept" him behind for the night drive later the evening. He is quite a handsome young bloke and there was a few young ladies to keep him company :twisted: :D

Hi my lovely friends!

I am so sorry that I was not able to come to Rietvlei on Sat :( a family situation came up that same morning.

It is. Delight to see all the old, and some new faces to me! It seems like a happy meet!! :D

Glad you are feeling better Val!

It was a great treat to meet all the awesome mites! What real great people!

Me and Skillie made great new friends and we are already exchanging recipes!

A big thanx to Heksie rallying all the mites, Wendy for taking care of the VIPs and Mads every thing else!

Thanx for all the great food the mites brought, we had a real feast!

VVV and Heksie, please post more photos of all the mites!
